First Welcome
LP $20.95


CF.23 / CFUL 0214 

***Centripetal Force and Cardinal Fuzz release the eighth full-length album from the ever evolving, veteran psychonauts White Manna. White Manna's longevity as one of the leaders of the modern psychedelic movement isattributed to their willingness to introduce new elements to their sonic , these moves were subtle, but as the band has moved on through the years,these moves have become much more pronounced, always leaving listeners wonderingwhat is in store for them as new releases are announced. So, here we are with FirstWelcome, an album that features warbled country leanings, airy blooms of ambience,and occasional hints of a German yesteryear, all implemented into the band's signaturehazy and spacey mosaic of sound. None of these developments are unexpected, as theydo build off of their previous album ARC, but here we see the band expand theseelements and really make them their own. It should be noted that First Welcome is a product of the COVID era, with much of therecording happening in quarantine or while socially distanced. The band's process reliedon communicating via email and sending music files back and forth. For White Manna this made the world of COVID both more fun and challenging, and they used theopportunity to get friends in different places to overdub tracks. Backing vocals and slideguitar were recorded while camping in the Mojave Desert. The saxophone was recordedin Liverpool. England. The trumpet sounds and some of the passages on the Rhodeswere laid down in Northern California, and much of the vocals, piano, and synthesizertracks were recorded in Costa Rica. As a result, the sound of First Welcome is reflective of the circumstances of these contemplative times. Edition of 500 copies. (STREET DATE - 12/10/2021)
